Hello friends, this past week Michael and I started learning about space.
I put together this lapbook with lapbooklessons.com and also some resources from enchantedlearning.com. The cover is simply black construction paper and I drew the solar system with chalk. I used it as a teaching tool so I did the work. But I did have Michael color the phases of the moon cards.
We got the model for this paper rocket from Daniellesplace.com
The Astronaut idea came from Pinterest. Black construction paper with glitter stars. I printed out an enlarged photo, cut out Michael’s head, and he put it in the middle of a white circle. Super simple 🙂
Our favorite part of the week was the Oreo moons. We learned about the lunar cycle. These are actually generic Oreos but they taste the same. Yummm….
I thought I’d throw this in. I loved the Odd and Even game from:
Also, the book “Even Steven and Odd Todd” is highly recommended.
Like I said in a previous post…for Michael’s 2nd Christian birthday (celebrating when he was spiritually born again), we went to the Space and Science Center.
They have a nifty center with a replica of the Mars rovers.
There’s also a weather center with a green screen. Look Michael’s a hurricane lol!
Well, more space stuff next week.
God bless and remember the High King lives! ~Amber Dover

Cool…didn’t know you were celebrating his spiritual bd…love ya’ll Mom
🙂 yeah it was just us two. I think you were working that day…so was Chris. love you!
I love the idea of using Oreos as your moon! Oh, I am going to have to try this now. Thanks for the idea!
YW 🙂 yeah we found it on Pinterest I think. We find so many ideas there. Let me know how it goes. The one we saw actually had the kid eat the creme away. We decided to eat the cookie part into the shapes. It’s probably easier just eating the creme into shapes and taking off the top part. God bless!
Thanks for the tip! Blessings in return!
I’m digging the OREO moons! Very cool! 🙂
Thanks Rachel 🙂 Yeah they were tasty lol 🙂
